Beinn Dorain is a familiar sight to those travelling northwards along the A82 or along the West Highland railway line. This Argyll & Bute walk is not the hardest of climbs and is most often combined with neighbouring Munro Beinn an Dothaidh.

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers.
